Where Have I Been?

It’s been ages since I’ve blogged. A fact that has been gnawing away at the back of my mind for the past few months. It’s not that I’ve not been travelling. And it’s certainly not that I’ve ceased indulging in beauty products. But I do have a reason for my prolonged absence. I got a…

The Best Delivery…

Today we received a package from England. We weren’t expecting anything so it came as somewhat of a surprise, a lovely surprise of course. Inside was what can only be described as the best delivery ever…two packets of Warburtons Giant Crumpets amongst other things but they were the absolute highlight, the gold dust if you…

Eye~catchers

I was just flicking through my recent pictures and realised there’s quite a few photos that I haven’t shared as they don’t necessarily fit into a blog ‘topic’. So I thought sod it, I’ll create a new one just for these sort of random shots that I want to share with you. If you follow me…

Visitors, Islands and Goodies.

My sister and her boyfriend arrived bringing with them a vast amount of exciting things, many of which I talked about in the post The List. Needless to say we will be eternally grateful and will make it all last way longer than it ever should at home (except the Mr Kipling French Fancies which…

The List

Whilst we can get most things here in Bangkok, there will always be the odd thing we can’t or that we just miss! With that in mind I thought I’d share with you some of the slightly random things we have asked our visitors to bring out for us. Toothpaste Toothpaste here is terrible, there is…

My Latest Addiction.

Thailand is home to the widest array of non-alcoholic beverages I have ever experienced. From smoothies and blends to iced coffees and juices, there really is something to take any fancy you may have on every street! 6.30am Cha Yen and Iced Latte Dave is a big coffee drinker so has naturally settled into the…

The View

You know those days when you wake up and just really feel alive? Well I’ve had quite a few of those this past week and I think the views from our new apartment have a lot to do with it. We are on the 14th floor, which for Bangkok isn’t even that high but for…

Crazy Weeks…

So sorry for my prolonged absence from the bloggersphere…I am back! The last few weeks just got very crazy as the first school year drew to an end and we moved flats; I did have every intention to blog but I just had very little time to actually do it! So as I mentioned we…

The Green Lung

Early one Saturday morning a few weekends ago we headed for the Green Lung of Bangkok with some friends. I had read about this remarkable area on a few blogs, heard about it from friends here and seen it from our favourite sky bar in the city! Bang Krachao, is a government-protected oasis of green that the mighty…

There’s a Storm Brewin’

As I mentioned a few days ago the rainy season is approaching and some of the skies we are seeing are seriously impressive. I took these pictures of the ominous skies on Thursday evening just before the heavens opened! The thunder and lightening that accompanied the storm was amazing.

Touching Base.

So life has been a bit hectic lately which has significantly hindered my blogging – no excuse I know! Apologies for the lack of posts and updates on life here in Bangkok. Here is a quick rundown of what’s been going on: New condo ~ Yay – we found a flat which we move into on the…

A Little Bit of What You Fancy.

We often get asked what we miss most, aside from friends and family obviously. Certain things always spring to mind, for me fish fingers and Galaxy Minstrels, for Dave it’s cheese. My parents brought us out a huge haul of goodies when they visited, which to be honest is a post in itself but in it…
